It’s time to review the HyperX ChargePlay Duo Controller Charging Station for Xbox One.

Keep two Xbox One controllers simultaneously charged with the Official Xbox Licensed HyperX ChargePlay Duo. Always have a second controller ready for multiplayer or to swap in during marathon gaming sessions. The charging station has a stable, weighted base and is designed for both Xbox One Wireless Controllers and Xbox One Elite Wireless Controllers. It includes two 1400mAh rechargeable battery packs and universal battery doors eliminating the cost of replacement batteries. Simply dock the controllers to charge without having to remove the battery packs. Conveniently check the charging status at a glance with the individual LED indicators.

What’s in the box?

The box contains the charging station, two rechargable battery packs, two battery doors, power adaptor and quick start guide.

A Closer Look

Using the ChargePlay Duo

Open the back of your Xbox One controller (including the Elite Controller), replace the batteries with one of the ChargePlay Duo batteries.

Use one of the ChargePlay Duo controller battery doors.

Then put the controller on the Duo to charge.

Final Thoughts

The HyperX ChargePlay Duo Controller Charging Station for Xbox One is an official licensed Xbox product so you know you are getting quality!

Using the station is very simple as you can see above – plug it in, and swap the batteries and doors out on your controllers and then put them on the station to charge – simple as that.

The battery packs have charging status indicators so you can easy see how much power you have remaining by just turning over the controller. This is really useful to stop the controller losing power at the wrong moment!

If you still use normal batteries in your controllers the cost of the Duo Controller will soon pay for itself and is a must have!

The HyperX ChargePlay Duo Controller Charging Station for Xbox One is available now priced around £25 and there is also a PS4 version if you would prefer, or why not get both?

You can learn more from the HyperX website.

  1. Hi there,

    Just curious if there is over charge protection for the batteries, if I left it over night. Will it be compatible with the Xbox Series X controller set to release this November?
